Ruva Chigwedere is a young woman who will be making headlines. She intelligent, with a strong head on her shoulders.
Born in Zimbabwe, she came over to the United States with her parents when she was four-years-old. Her father received his Ph.D. studying infectious diseases from Harvard University; one of the reasons why she is keen on going there in the Fall.
However, this ambitious young lady went further than just getting accepted to Harvard. She got accepted to Yale, Princeton, and Cornell, as well. She stated in an in-person interview “that it was very hard for her to choose which one to go to, but, in the end, it was Harvard because her dad said so.”
Her parents are her role models as they both worked hard to provide for their family after coming to America.
Right now, she is undeclared for a major, but she is leaning towards political science or social economics since she would love to be president one day. With her bright wit and big dreams, this young lady will certainly be doing big things in the future.
